Kama Sutra Valentines Nothing like starting with chocolate and ending with more chocolate. We just finished a two week  India yoga and cultural adventure through southern and northern India that was so relaxed and frenetic, deeply spiritual and perplexing, fun and despairing, and at times challenging, but every day provided one unexpected and insightful adventure after another. As a traveler if you are open to the experience India inevitably presents it teaches us in so many ways. And I know from previous travels here that nothing is as it seems and like our guide Herendra told us when someone commented on pigeons flying overhead, “Everything has meaning.” On this last night of our Yoga Cultural Adventure it was Valentine’s Day, Scott’s birthday, and our 26th wedding anniversary so we needed a place to celebrate life and love! But of course, here in the heartland of the Kama Sutra, every restaurant was full of...

4 Romantic Spots in Turkey 1. The Bosphorus has been the center of Istanbul for ions and a cruise to one of the water-side restaurants there is a romantic pleasure. Take a local ferry to a high-end neighborhood such as Bebek to walk on the boardwalk and dine in a fabulous seafood restaurant such as Bebek Balıkçısı or Eleos in Beyoğlu.     2. Drink wine in an ancient theater. On our Turquoise Coast Odyssey, we like to stop for a glass of wine and perhaps a song or poetry in Simena, dating from the 4th century BC. How romantic to enjoy sunset while looking out to the Mediteranean.      3. The very streets of Kaş are romantic with bourgainevilla flowers blooming on blue-shuttered buidlings, cobblestone streets, and the bright blue sea . Spend the evening with dinner at a local restaurant on the Medan, town square, watching children play and other couples stroll...

This photo really does says it all, traveling with your love is one of the most powerful experiences you can have togehter. When I took this photo I was traveling with a girlfriend and when we stumbled upon this sign it really made us realize how lucky we were to be traveling the world together. By far my best trips and memories have been spent traveling with someone I love. No matter what level or state the relationship was in, traveling together strenghted our bond. Traveling also gives you a chance to take your relationship to new heights. It gives you all the elements you need to build a better and stronger relationship: lots of time together (which, with our busy schedules doesn't happen as oftern as we like.), unforgettable memories, new expeirences, a reason to spoil each other and most importantly... it gives you a chance to leave all...
National Park Authorities in Argentina have recently mandated a strict adherence to the age restriction guidelines that were previously not enforced for travelers embarking on the Mini Trekking or Big Ice Expedition trek on Perito Moreno Glacier.  Of the more than 350 glaciers within Los Glacieres National Park, Perito Moreno Glacier is easily the most famous due to its massive size (more than four miles across and a height of over 180' above the water level), the high frequency at which it calves and the accessibility.  It is one of the few places in the world where individuals without previous mountain experience can don crampons and hike along the glacier's surface, exploring crevasses, ice caves and shallow pools, after just a quick catamaran ride across the lake and a short approach hike.  Previously, age restrictions were not enforced and travelers with good physical fitness could participate at the discretion of...

Top 3 Places to Fall in Love in Ecuador Everyone knows that beaches are romantic, right? Walking barefoot in sand & surf, playing tag with the waves….awwww. But there are other natural locations that offer their own distinctive glow.  Here are my top 3 places to fall in love while traveling in Ecuador: The rainforest – Lazing in a hammock while a tropical storm sweeps through the verdant forest, leaving everything sparkling and sultry in its wake. A nighttime canoe paddles under star-studded skies, the sounds of the night forest alive all around you. Exhilarating and sensuous, all at the same time. At the top of my list is the Napo Wildlife Center in Ecuador. It is located adjacent to 82 sq miles of Yasunì National Park and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the largest tract of protected tropical rain forest in Ecuador. The Mountains – Specifically an Andean hacienda, tucked away amidst volcanic peaks. Spend the day hiking alpine trails, horseback riding,...
